Food Grade Buckets
Our food grade buckets are FDA-approved and made of low-melt, high-density polyethylene. This process makes the best quality buckets for food safe storage and impact strength. They feature reinforced Saturn rings to prevent pail distortion and uniformly thick sidewalls for optimum stacking strength, as well as a tapered design for easy separation. Additionally, our buckets are made in the USA and are BPA free.
In a small space you can store a lot of food for a long time. Reuse the buckets as many times as you want. For food storage you must have an airtight seal especially if you are not planning on using Mylar bags. Our 3.5 Gallon and 5 Gallon gamma lids create an airtight seal. To store food in a bucket with a snap-on lid, use an airtight bag for your food. Snap on lids are best for storing dry products requiring constant access. Snap on lids are easily removed and resealed.
Our buckets are solvent resistant and safe to use with paint, varnishes, concrete, sealants, and asphalt coatings. Remember, when you put a chemical in HDPE plastic, it is absorbed and will leach into any food later stored in the bucket. Always store food in new food-grade buckets, made of plastic of stainless steel.
